On the Velvet Sheep radio show, I play the topper-most tunes picked as part of the fanzine’s “song for ewe” feature where favourite artistes old and new choose an obscure-ish song they’ve enjoyed lately.

With no rules on genre or era, the songs range from psychobilly freakouts to psychedelic workouts, rare doo-wop to classic punk rock, pastoral to choral and extreme noise terror to elegant ambient soundscapes.

This week’s shake appealing artists with “songs for ewe” are:
Greg Keeffe (bIG fLAME)
Ben Lee (Noiseaddict)
Thurston Moore 
Gareth Liddiard (TFS/Springtime)

Plus new tunes from Acid Mother Reynols, Lucretia Dalt & The Nightingales plus oldies from Seduce, Squarepusher and The Seeds…
